While many children enter school with well-developed phonological awareness skills, research has shown the critical need for explicit instruction to ensure all children have this foundation for reading. Specifically, participants will learn why phonemic awareness is a necessary prerequisite for learning to read, as well as explore best practices and instructional tools for teaching phonological and phonemic awareness skills.
Welcome! This self-paced course is designed to explore phonological awareness. This is an introductory course that will provide a basic understanding. For more or additional information on any of the topics, please contact the course facilitator. Throughout the four lessons, participants will engage in readings, videos, reflections, and multiple quiz-type activities that must be completed to complete the course and to receive CTLE credit.
